Project realized in collaboration with TU Berlin, Crowdee and Nexsus
TU Berlin is one of the largest universities in Germany. With about 32,000 students, an educational offer of about 100 courses and 40 institutes, the historic Technische Universität Berlin is one of the largest and most internationally renowned technical universities. It is located in the German capital, in the center of Europe, and consists of seven faculties whose subjects range from technical and natural sciences to planning, economic, social and humanities disciplines. The educational offering consists of some 40 bachelor’s degree programs and 60 master’s degree programs and is the only one in the region that also includes training in engineering.
Crowdee is a platform for scholarly research, conducting periodic surveys and user testing, categorizing activities, and fielding knowledge calls. Developed by the Department of Quality and Usability at the Technical University of Berlin, it grew out of 6 years of studies to understand the behavior patterns of online and commuting workers, carried out through software development and artificial intelligence experts.
The Nexsus Institute for Management Cooperation and Interdisciplinary Research was founded in 1999 by the Center for Technology and Society at the Technical University of Berlin. For years Nexsus has been working on mobility, community spaces, demographic society and civil society, globalization and the identity of governments, knowledge and organizational culture. The main research topics thus concern the interaction between social processes (demographic trends, migration routes), planning (urban development, climate change) and infrastructure (mobility and energy).
